Fontconfig 2.4.0 has been released, bits are available at:
There aren't any substantive code changes since 2.3.97, but the
configuration files have been completely reorganized, thanks to James
Special notes to packagers:
1) new cache file format and location. Old fonts.cache-1 files are now
useless and can be removed. For those distributions running unstable 2.4
prereleases (2.3.9x), the cache-2 files are also now invalid and should
be removed. Cache files are now installed in /var/cache/fontconfig or
2) config file restructuring. the conf.d directory needs to be cleaned
of previously installed configuration files. Custom configuration files
will need new numbers.
